Wolf pack extermination cost state $77,000
Money wasted on worthless, killer wolf
It is quite evident from the election results that Washington state is run by the brilliant West Coast politicians, along with a few potheads.
Sen. Kevin Ranker (a wolf expert?) is spending time and money defending the wolf when the state of Washington is broke [“Killing NE Washington wolf pack cost $77,000,” seattletimes.com, Nov. 14]. Does living on Orcas Island make him an expert in ranching and wildlife?
Wolf advocates say they are valuable to science and beloved wolf watchers who go out to see them attack and kill animals. Twisted is a good description here.
The wolf, like the mosquito, serves no useful purpose. A lot of politicians receive political donations and backing from the environmentalist do-gooders and so they are stuck where it hurts most, in the pocketbook.
The state Fish and Wildlife Department people have to say what they are told to say and so you will never get the truth about the wolf.
The U.S. government spent millions eradicating the wolf and succeeded. Everyone was happy until environmentalists along with their bought-and-paid-for politicians put them on the endangered species list and spent millions upon millions of taxpayer money on the worthless, killer wolf.
